There’s nothing like family. Family is quite possibly the most important and quintessential aspect of human life. Family stands for so much more than just your nuclear family… sometimes those that aren’t even blood related can be just as important to you. Family can be anyone who you hold dear. Sometimes there is an extra special person in your life who “gets” you and cares for you like no other. Christine Cruz, the author of My Grandmother, Mi Abuela, holds a special place in her heart for her Grandmother.

My Grandmother, Mi Abuela is a sweet story told from a granddaughter’s perspective. From the time she was a young child to when she became an adult, her grandmother encouraged, cared for, and loved her to an unmeasureable degree.

As an adult the granddaughter realizes, now that roles are reversing, how she appreciates her even more. With time spent together and stories shared, their love continues to grow and strengthen. Even after all these years.

This story is a wonderful testament to how important family is, and no matter how old you get, there are always things to learn from one another. Whether it’s a story you’ve never heard, a life lesson, or just a sweet hug, they are moments to be shared and cherished.

We all know how busy our lives can get, and it’s easy to get swept up in it all. Believe me, I know. But it’s good for your heart (and your body), to stop and slow down once in a while. Spend time with family, friends, and those dear to you. For those are what matters most in life. It’s not things, but people that bring the warmest and happiest of smiles to our faces.

As I read this story to my daughter, it reminded me a lot of my family and all the things we do together. From Sunday dinners to celebrating special events, there’s no better way to share these special moments, than with family.

Let this heart-warming book be a sweet story to read to your children, to help remind them how important family is. With cute and colorful illustrations, they will love to snuggle up and read this fun book. As an added bonus, it even has Spanish translation! On every page you can read the English and then Spanish translation. I think this is such a wonderful way to teach children about other languages and cultures.

Time spent with your precious little ones is enriching for both parent and child, so sit back and read them this heart-warming story.
